    I Wanted To Be A Nurse....

    Well I went to college to be a nurse. It was a huge dream and I really wanted it so much. I ended up becoming a CNA and taking care of the elderly which is very hard work but yet very rewarding. I spent 4yrs taking care of our moms/dads and grandparents. I formed many bonds...

    Whether it be cleaning,

    reading or any other activities I find It much easier to do at night, especially when I can't bring myself to do it during the day. The night brings me a great sense of peace and relaxation. But not the type to sleep through :p. (maybe except during the rain)

    Status update: it is 2:48.

    The owl perches once again. It would not be a big deal if the owl didn't have class in the morning. The owl lays in a nest of strategically arranged blankets that sit precisely to her liking. She types away at her dying laptop Is it worth it to get up and get the charger...

    Always have been. Have had day jobs

    and yet stay up til only a couple hours to the next shift. If I try to get on a more normal schedule, it'll last for a couple days then right back to my up all night and most of the day schedule. I love it. I love the dark.

    Insomnia Even though the house is deeply

    I admit it I am rather nocturnal.

    . There is just something about being up late. I think it's the peacefulness I feel without the hustle and hurry of the day. :)

    Hello to my fellow night owls!

    Almost every night I'm up at this time. It's a time when I feel I can do a lot more, because everyone is sleeping and the house is quiet. No one is there to disturb me as I do my work or what I enjoy.

    When it hits midnight i seem to become more

    One thing I love about the night is the

    solitude. I can sit in a darkened room for hours and soak in the quietness. I enjoy being by myself ( been like this all my life).
